Make it possible for bots, to check if user has nitro, is in hypesquad, is staff, etc.

    Would be cool by one sense, abusable in another. Imagine bots immediately banning anyone who isn't in X HypeSquad house instead of Y.

    This endpoint already exists. See "flags"

    The issue with that is, that it needs you to have a special 2OAuth setup/link in order to even receive the info (See how it mentions "Identify" in the "Required OAuth2 Scope" area, which according to the OAuth2 page is a seperate setting(?)

    My feedback was for making it usable by bots, I updated my description a bit to make it more clear.

     

    Also @MoonlightCapital

    Isn't that already the case with bots out there? This would (of course) make it worse, but it wouldn't start this "fight", There are 145+ million users out there (And I have no idea if that already counts bots) and the chance that there are bots which "abuse" certaing things is almost always 100%.

    Already possible. Read the API docs.

    Oauth2 is "useable" by the bots and ``What on discord's API doesn't give a potential for abuse`` is a really bad argument. There is a reason why it requires an additional scope like for email, list guilds, connections or invitation.

    I believe this is already possible.

    Even if the user had to do the oauth2 at first then afterwards the bot can just check the user's profile rather than us having to do the oauth2 stuff again to check for updates
